Course Description

Getting directions or finding restaurants is the tip of the iceberg for Google Maps. Imagine adding geographic, visual, and audio components to a map to tell the story of your family history, or a travel adventure. We will start the course by creating custom Google Maps and adding pins on a shared map indicating where students and their relatives are from. Next, we'll add photos, descriptions, and other enhancements. We'll move on to creating maps of our own family origins, or of our personal travels or other interests. On the way, we'll discover easy ways to grab related images and video, including by digitizing family photos. Finally, we'll explore an outreach project to share our skills in using these tools. | Active participation.
